Why are Fall/Winter tours so much better than Spring/Summer tours? It’s like the colder it gets, the more awesome the shows get. It’s a phenomenon in metal that demands further study. Someone get on that, ASAP.

As a sign of the improving times, Metalsucks announced The Legacy Tour, featuring Darkest Hour, Veil of Maya, Periphery, and a special guest opener (whom is rumored to be Revocation, but who the hell knows?). I’m not too much on Darkest Hour. I’d stick around for their set, sure, but the show here for me lies in Veil of Maya and Periphery. Veil of Maya put on a stellar set and I’ve yet to see Periphery tear it up live. Periphery remains as one of my favorites of their year so far. And if Revocation really is on board, they’d be fun to watch as well.

Now there just needs to be a date close enough for me to see it.
